The AGSE-Y002-G06 Light Weight Self Erecting Gantry is designed to provide the capability of supporting large aircraft engines (120 inch diameter fans) during field assembly (engine split
operations), module replacement, and stand transfer. Hoist capacity and location will dictate gantry capabilities. The gantry is suitable for complete engine module replacement, thus eliminating the need to ship complete engines. It can also be used at main base maintenance facilities to provide extra capability during peak workloads. The unit knocks down to a compact 64 inch high x 96 inch wide x 125 inch long volume for shipping. The gantry is self erecting, requiring only a forklift to remove it from a pallet dolly, separate it from its pallet support frame, and remove the storage
container. A ladder is also required to install the bridge locking pins. An optional self deployment kit (AGSE-Y005-G01) eliminates the need for the forklift.
When erected, the gantry is mounted on casters and can be moved by hand along tracks provided. The gantry should not be moved when supporting loads.
The gantry includes three hoist rails (one centered) and two adjustable with rail spacings of 144, 120, 96, 58, and 48 inches. The outboard rails include two 4-Ton hoists each. The gantry has a minimum of loose components and moving parts. Storage for components is provided by a removable fiberglass container.
